Budget to Report
Improve the efficiency of SAP budget-to-report processes
Winshuttle Query and Transaction enable business users to measure business effectiveness more efficiently and reduce administrative overhead while improving the SAP budget-to-report process across all divisions and functions. For example, financial analysts can use Query to easily create queries for generating accounts payable reports that list vendor, checks issued, check amounts, and check dates. These queries extract live SAP data directly into Excel for easier consumption by decision-makers and can facilitate faster and more accurate data analysis for both financial planning and reporting.
An easy-to-understand SAP data dictionary and simple drag-and-drop procedures enable users to quickly create queries for virtually any cross-section of SAP budget-to-report data, including:
- Budget figures
- Cost centers
- Fixed assets
- Bank/cash management
If users need to update data, they can use Transaction to quickly make changes to one or many data points in Excel’s familiar and more usable interface, and then upload the data directly from Excel to SAP.
